Movement Disorder Modules

Your resource to learn more about movement disorders


Our team at the Yale School of Medicine has developed an online, interactive, patient video-based curriculum in movement disorders. The curriculum is designed for neurology residents at any PGY level. The curriculum consists of an introductory video and 10 modules that may be done at the discretion of the individual residency program or resident. They are designed to provide a framework for an approach to movement disorders, and guidance through the process of seeing a movement disorders patient starting with proper description of the exam, and working towards phenomenology, workup, diagnosis, and treatment. Each module takes approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.

Modules are designed for “discovery” of the phenomenology and diagnosis and best completed blindly, but if you would like to pick and choose modules to complete, then please refer to the “Modules Cheat Sheet” for a list of module topics.

Modules will be added over time, with the ultimate goal to accommodate multiple levels of learner. Feel free to check back periodically for updates!

*Our patients have generously consented to their videos being used for educational purposes in these modules.

Please do not copy, share, or otherwise duplicate the patient videos.*
